If one wants to track business opportunities with China, I suggest tracking by industry. Today’s flavor of the day: wind energy.
Tracking money coming out of China can be as simple as tracking what incentives and new programs the Chinese government is promoting; that is where the money originates from.
China Energy Conservation Investment Corporation (中国节能投资公司) is a good example of a governmental vehicle used to direct funding into a top-priority industry — clean energy. If you watch the deal news, large-ticket joint ventures and equity deals are being financed by Chinese banks and other forms of government funding. The Chinese have become increasingly sophisticated in making the wind turbine components at low-cost, and with government funding to obtain majority control in wind turbine deals in the U.S., these deals are becoming more and more attractive for all involved.
